We've seen diamonds on sneakers before in the form of removable accessories like the Kickbars
and Ends for your laces
but Outkast's Big Boi is the proud owner of a pair of $50,000 Nikes with the diamonds studded on to the shoe. Big Boi, whose real name is Antwan Patton, received the shoes this week for free from Atlanta retailers Laced Up Boutique
and Priyya and Chintans Diamonds
. The sneakers are Air Force 1 "So Cals" which have been jazzed up with 11 carats worth of champagne diamonds around the Nike swoosh (check out the big picture in the gallery below for detail). The shoes without the fancy upgrade sell for $225.
The $50,000 shoes are available for special order and you can get a pair in time for Christmas if you order soon. It three to four weeks to complete the jewelry work.
